Republican Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis defended his recent dubbing of President Joe Biden’s administration as the “Brandon administration” during a Monday interview.

WPEC CBS12 News reporter Jay O’Brien pressed the Florida governor on calling the administration “the Brandon administration” in reference to the popular anti-Biden phrase “Let’s Go, Brandon” at an election integrity press conference on Nov. 3 in Tampa Bay.

“Do you feel that that is the proper level of exchange between a governor and a president?” O’Brien asked.

“Well, let me ask you how he’s treated us. Well, look, I think it’s a joke but honestly, one of the reasons why that has taken on is because a lot of your folks in the national media, they get very sensitive to it,” DeSantis responded. “Because what happened was people were chanting something else very colorful. You had a reporter though, say it was ‘Let’s Go, Brandon’ when that’s not really what was said.”

“I think the reason why it’s caught on is because I think it needles the national media a little bit because look, they’ve become very partisan.”

O’Brien continued to press the governor by arguing that the “Brandon administration” term is a “swear about the president.”

The governor further defended his rhetoric, arguing that the media largely supports the president and that very little backlash arose in response to the media’s harsh criticisms made about former President Donald Trump.

“Was there hand wringing about the stuff said about Trump for four years? No, there wasn’t,” DeSantis said.
